Apologies for the very amateur photography on my smart phone and there is slight misrepresentation in the photos the badge appears to say orange its just because its a VGA camera actually says lemon when not pixelated.

Still some black superstar nanos and some black bender fenders as well to come in the post.

Black pedals and mucky nuts. Coloured pedals always look crap with a bit of wear.
